This Guy is Going to Turn DTLA into a Giant Harp and Play a FREE Concert (Tonight!)

Posted by

Malibu-based musician William Close claims that his Earth Harp is the largest stringed instrument in the world, and tonight he’s bringing his magic to Downtown Los Angeles for a free event!

Close, who has been featured on America’s Got Talent, has strung up his harp to The City National Plaza Tower (700 ft. high!) and will perform two free concerts this evening coinciding with the timing of the Downtown Art Walk.


The shows will include guest performances by violinist Shaina Evoniuk, guitarist Thomas Hyorth, drummer Richard Sherwood and vocalists Rafe Perlman and Morgon Sorne.
